Nick showed up on Kaitlyn's The Bachelorette edition several weeks into the process but wooed Kaitlyn quickly. The pair memorably slept together in Ireland well ahead of the overnight Fantasy Suites.
Kaitlyn, however, ended up giving her final rose and getting engaged to personal trainer Shawn Booth, whom she split from in November 2018 after three years of being together. (Kaitlyn is now datingThe Bachelorette alum Jason Tartick and competing on Season 29 of Dancing with the Stars).
Nick continued his search for love on reality television following his split from Kaitlyn through a stint on Bachelor in Paradise, but when a romance with Jennifer Saviano didn't work out, ABC selected him to star on The Bachelor's 21st season to hopefully find his match.
Nick got engaged toVanessa Grimaldi at the end of his season, but their romance kicked off with more challenges than the average The Bachelor couple to come out of the show given Vanessa was living in Canada and Nick wanted to stay in the United States.
Shortly after getting engaged, Nick also competed on Dancing with the Stars, which soaked up a lot of his free time and energy.
